i am 8.5 weeks post hysterectomy SSF A and P repairs. All ok as far as surgeon is concerned. Cleared to exercise etc but limit lifting to 10 kgs..
I went to see a woman’s health physio this week for exercise advice. She checked I was engaging pelvic floor correctly when exercising it She gave me more advanced core and glute exercises to support pelvic floor. She also corrected my posture to put hips in optimal position for PF to work properly. The thing that she also stressed was relaxing your PF with deep belly breathing. she suggested trying it standing but I couldn’t relax and breathe in this position so doing it lying down.
i had been aching a lot in the afternoon/evening so wondering if I have been tiring these muscles out by over clenching.
Anyway, I seem to now have lost the ability to stand sit and walk without overthinking what I should do. So questions
1 Do you hold or relax PF when walking and sitting?
2 Aching PF muscles....how long does this go on for, is it normal?
3 if PF is tense/aching....should I reduce Kegels?
I will see her again in a few weeks but advice from any that has had similar problems would be great.
